So i have switched over from drum brakes in the front to disc's, but i am worried the stock master cylinder will not have enough reservoir of fluid for when the brake pads get like half way wore down, and the brake caliper has more fluid sucked out of the master cylinder.

First off. does the original M/C have a big enough bore to push the front discs, and will i suck the reservoir dry trying to run the discs?

And if not will a disc drum reservoir bolt up to the firewall in the stock location or have the same bolt pattern since i am not running a power booster?

I have already purchased a stock M/C, but i would rather return it before i put fluid in it and just order the correct one.

Reservoir size shouldn't be a problem.i think I would look at a cylinder from like a 72 model and see how they match up.If I remember right,72's came with disc.Others may be of more help
Thanks for the info, I will see if my local Napa has a 72 M/C so i can put them side bye side and do some comparing.....
